SIS Growth Challenge: Applications welcome by 23 September

We are delighted to launch another round of the SIS Growth Challenge. Applications are welcome until close of business on Friday 23 September.


Social Investment Scotland seek established charities and social enterprises with growth plans for 2022/2023, that require funding and would benefit from a flexible loan and grant solution.

Successful applicants will have growth aspirations that need £100k+ of loan funding, with potential for up to 20% of the loan amount required as a grant, and be able to demonstrate how these funds will generate an increased Social Impact in their community as well as a sustainable business model. Successful applicants may also be able to benefit from up to £5,000 of investment readiness grants, if required

We are holding three informal virtual drop-in sessions on the Growth Challenge, giving you the opportunity to hear first-hand about the process and ask any specific questions you have about the fund.
